Tissue flower tutorial

A while ago, I shared a card that was finished with a flower made with a tissue. Beate asked if I'd do a tutorial for Splitcoast Stampers on how to make the flower and today's the day it's available for anybody who would like it.

Here's a little peek at the flower and here's the link to Splitcoast if you would like either the step-by-step tutorial or the accompanying video: Facial Tissue Flower tutorial.


It's a wee bit fiddly but really inexpensive and you almost certainly have everything you need already so it won't send you running to the shop (and the inevitable temptation to buy things you didn't actually set out to buy!).

Leave a comment here or on Splitcoast if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them!

Materials for the flower
Facial tissue
Memento marker (Angel Pink)
Glue dot covered with nmcrobeads or something else to finish the centre
Thread
Strong, sharp scissors

To finish the card
Say It Loud stamp set (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Tim Holtz Distrress Ink (Bundled Sage)
Versafine ink (Vitntage Sepia)
 M-Bossabilities folder (Flora)
Sewing machine

Thanks for stopping by!
